Thousands of federal workers have just missed their first paycheck



Hundreds of thousands of federal workers have missed their first paycheck of the year due to the ongoing partial closure of the government, as President Donald Trump is no closer to closing a stalemate on his border with Democrats.

Pay about 800,000 government officials The staff died nearly three weeks ago, and on Friday begins the first wave of lost paychecks. Operation in nine divisions, including Homeland Security, Justice, Treasury, Environmental Protection Agency and NASA, is affected.

The government stalemate began on December 22nd and is today the second-longest in the world. Because of the lack of funding for about a quarter of the government, around 380,000 workers were fired and sent home, while 420,000 continue to work as "essential" employees, but without pay. Many of the key workers are law enforcement officers at the Department of Homeland Security, including agents of the Border Guard and Transport Security Administration.

Many reports of workers worried about paying their bills have surfaced, even though thousands of employees have continued to work without any guarantee, they will be compensated after cessation of downtime.

"Morale is, I believe, very close, and I think things will get really bad if this is not resolved by the weekend, "said a TSA officer who last received a paycheck on December 28, against HuffPost's Nick Robins-Early.

Congress Must Pass Legislation These workers pay a refund as soon as the government reopens, as was the case after previous closures. Many workers received their last paycheck just before the New Year and may now have to rely on savings, loans, or unemployment benefits to cover their bills billions for a wall on the southern border, a structure he originally said was Mexico's favor would pay. He did not go at his request, and the leaders of the Democrats refused to give in, describing the wall as wasteful and foolish. The White House is now flirting with the proclamation of a national emergency to secure funding.

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss), chair of the Home Affairs Committee, said Trump held the federal government hostage.

"Over 200,000 employees at the DHS – because of the protection of our skies, waterways and borders – are also not paid while working," Thompson said in a statement. "Families will find it hard to hire due to the childlike behavior of the president Paying to turn on the lights and put food on the dining table, he should not treat them like farmers in his wretched pursuit of an absurd campaign pledge. "

The White House also felt the effects of the stalemate, with only 156 employees considered essential

Reopening The government has largely failed since the beginning of the year, and the closure is set to become the longest since the 1970s if it is not resolved by Saturday, the president reportedly stormed on Wednesday Meeting with Senate Minority Council Chairman Chuck Schumer (NY) and Speaker of House Na ncy Pelosi (California) after being told that they would not give in to his demands. He slammed his hands on a table and said: Bye-bye.

The leaders of the Democrats have criticized the behavior of the president and equated it with a tantrum.

"It was not even a high-stakes trial," Pelosi said Wednesday. "It was an angry President of the United States. "

Trump is getting more and more comfortable with the prospect of securing funding for the Wall through a national emergency declaration." In several media reports, it was pointed out that the president spent billions of dollars on disaster and construction of military mortgage lending for the construction of the Wall beobachtet hatte. Eine Quelle sagte der Washington Post, dass Trump innerhalb der nächsten 45 Tage mit der Wandarbeit beginnen möchte.

Titel 10 des US-amerikanischen Kodex erlaubt die Verwendung von nicht verwendetem Geld im Falle eines nationalen Notfalls.

Der Präsident sagte in einem Interview mit Fox News-Moderator Sean Hannity während eines Besuchs an der Südgrenze am Donnerstag Wenn er sich nicht mit dem Kongress abschließen kann, wird er "am wahrscheinlichsten" versuchen, einen nationalen Notfall zu erklären .

"Das Gesetz ist zu 100 Prozent auf meiner Seite", sagte Trump. „Ich meine, wir haben das uneingeschränkte Recht, einen nationalen Notfall zu erklären, und das ist Sicherheit. Dies ist ein nationaler Notfall. "
